We watched some dogs play in the water at the very small dog beach while having drinks at Louis' Back Yard. It is sandy and the dogs were enjoying the romp in the water.

Very tiny beach area but there was enough room for my Golden to swim in the ocean. He loved it. Went there 3 times to let him swim and cool off.

They call this a dog beach, but it is so small, a dog can't even stretch their legs there. The day we visited with our dog, the water happened to have a lot of sea weed in it, so we didn't even let her get in.

Nice little sandy beach to spend some time with your pooch. Parking can be tough and there were man o' war washing up every day we were there last week so be very careful

While dining at louies backyard you are right next to dog beach. Dog beach is about the size of average living room. The beach is sandy, thats a good thing, but you are in a fish bowl. Probably ok for a romp with the puppies, hence dog beach.

This is a tiny beach where dogs are allowed. Not the best for swimming but good place to lay out if you don't mind be on display.(right next to restaurant)

Florida can be pretty dog unfriendly, but at least there's a place that welcomes dogs. I just wish it was bigger.

This was our dog's first trip to the ocean (she's about 18 months old) and she's not used to the waves yet. We had traveled through Florida and she went on a couple pet-friendly beaches on the way and got her toes wet, and enjoyed walking on the beach. We were at Key West for three days, and took a...

We rented bicycles on the port cruise dock pier. The land is flat so this is a great way to see all Key West has to offer. Peddled down Duval St., took pictures at Route 1 begin and end sign...just imagine this same road goes all the way north to Maine! Made it to the Southern Most Point in USA... More
